There are few more impressive sights than the stretch of Hadrian's Wall that rides the Northumberland hills. But the wall also took in towns and forts, and sustained a way of life for several centuries. Hadrian's Wall is a teacher's handbook from English Heritage that briefly explains everything your class will want to know about, from latrines to religion, with excellent resource sheets on building techniques, place names, and how and why the Romans eventually came to leave. Hadrian's Wall - A Teacher's Handbook costs pound;3.99 from English Heritage Postal Sales.
